Have you ever wanted to use your laptop as a desktop? With the lid closed, and the machine hooked up to a sexy cinema display?Â When I bought my iBook I dreamed of the possibility and was constantly told that it was impossible because the device would over heat.Â I never persued it further than that initial research, but, the thought never expired.
Having just purchased a brand spanking new Macbook Pro I figured I’d give it another go.Â Much to my chagrin, not only is it possible, but Apple actually recommends doing it.Â The real caveat here is that you obviously need a monitor, keyboard, and mouse plugged into it so it will work.
Plug in all the devices, close the lid, click a mouse button to wake it from sleeping, and away you go.
It’s as simple as that.Â Â If you want some more info, and more specifically information on using bluetooth devices, check out the support article from apple.
